Mo Salah stars as Liverpool took on Manchester City in the English Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The Liverpool forward continued his perfect start to the season.
The iconic fixture between the two great teams lived up to expectations but ended in a stalemate. It was a thrilling 2-2 draw with an end-to-end action at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah is inching closer to become one of the all time greats of modern football. The winger is consistent with his fine goalscoring form since joining the Reds in 2017. He has now scored 9 goals in 9 appearances for Liverpool this season. That’s an average of 1 goal per game.
Sadio Mane’s 99th Premier League goal
Liverpool took the lead through Sadio Mane after a swift counter attacking football. The Senegalese latched onto a Mo Salah through ball and finished it perfectly. That goal means Sadio Mane is just a shot away to reach a century of Premier League goals. A milestone Salah had already chalked.
Phil Foden equalised for City after missing a glorious opportunity in the first half. His shot was saved after an amazing Bernardo Silva ran from midfield.
A moment of brilliance from Mohamed Salah in the 76th minute erupted the atmosphere at Anfield. The Egyptian king dazzled through the City defence and scored a Messiesque goal to put Liverpool back in front.
Peter Drury’s comments
Moreover, Ace commentator Peter Drury described the goal as sensational, a potential goal of the season. He said “that’s PlayStation football. That’s ridiculous. You cannot do that without a joystick.”
However, Kelvin De Bryune restored parity 9 minutes from stoppage to deny Liverpool win. The results mean both teams are behind Chelsea who went atop after beating Southampton 3-1 earlier on Saturday.
